The Tutsi blanket is inspired by the fur of zebras. Animal skins have been part of the clothing of human beings practically since time immemorial to protect them from the weather. The first cavemen already used the skins of the animals they hunted to clothe themselves and protect themselves from the cold. Later, as humans evolved, animal skins became a symbol of wealth and social status rather than a need for warmth. In various African societies, leopard skins, for example, had political, social and even religious value. Thus, African tribal chieftains wore animal skins to demonstrate their status as chiefs.
